ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- Wayne Gretzky is ending his first campaign
as coach of the Phoenix Coyotes with a losing record.
The "Great One" will be behind the bench for the last time this
season Sunday when the Coyotes play their finale against the
lowly St. Louis Blues.
Phoenix has dropped six of its last seven games, including
Saturday's 5-1 defeat to the Nashville Predators. Defenseman
Dennis Seidenberg scored his third goal of the season.
The campaign can't end soon enough for St. Louis, which has
dropped 16 of its last 17 contests and is tied with Pittsburgh
for the league's worst record with two games remaining.
Lee Stempniak scored his 14th goal and Jamal Mayers added his
15th for the Blues in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Detroit Red
The Coyotes have won two of the first three meetings against
the Blues this season, including a 5-3 triumph on January 26.
